Once I realised how much hidden sugar can be in some of the big brands of ketchup, I started making my own using a small amount of natural maple syrup and coconut sugar to sweeten instead of refined sugars.
I wanted to make a barbecue sauce and a lot of them use a lot of tomato ketchup. I didn't want to put all of those nasties in my sauce so I used this for the base. I did mean I had to add some maple syrup to the barbecue sauce as it wasn't as sweet, but it's a better sauce because of it - 29 Apr 2016
Nice recipe. I am not a fan of sweet things so I used only half the maple syrup for personal preferences. I will use brown rice syrup the next time though. Needing to watch our salt intake, I used onion powder instead of onion salt and omitted the additional salt all together. We won't be purchasing ketchup anymore! Thank you Valorie for your recipe. - 12 Feb 2015 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is my recipe. I just now noticed that when published, All Recipes changed the amount of tomato sauce. IT SHOULD READ 1 (8oz.) CAN TOMATO SAUCE, not 8! - 25 Jan 2015 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
